    • Linda, I'm glad you are back. Living alone with PD is difficult, lonely, and downright scary at times. Now that you're back online and healing from your medical emergency, we'll look forward to sharing the PD journey with you. Dianne 
    • Hey Linda, get well soon.  -S
    • Hi, sweet friend.  Thanks so much for your concern and prayers.  I've enjoyed hearing of all you are are doing, and I think it's wonderful!
    • There's a reason that it's called Levodopa Induced Dyskinesia.  My MDS says that LID is easily cured - just take less Levodopa.  Of course, the problem is that taking less Levodopa can cause the PD symptoms to worsen.  My philosophy is to take the absolute minimum needed to control the symptoms and to use as many other non-drug tools as possible to slow progression and improve symptoms. 
    • Estimados usuarios, En los últimos años múltiples suplementos sugieren un beneficio potencial en la EP.  El uso de la cafeína en la EP ha sido evaluado recientemente como medicamento sintomático para disminuir la fatiga y adormecimiento y en progresión de la enfermedad.  Los resultados de un estudio de hasta cinco años en Canada estarán disponibles en los próximos anos.  De manera adicional, otro estudio realizado en los estados unidos y en candada será disponible a final de este ano para determinar el potencial de este suplemento para retrasar la progresión de la EP. Existe una relación inversa en el consumo de café y el riesgo de desarrollar la EP. Varios medicamentos que actúan a nivel de los receptores de cafeína también están siendo evaluados actualmente. El beneficio de la cafeína en la EP aun esta por ser determinado.  Consulte con su médico acerca del uso de este suplemento en su situación particular.   Saludos
